Very estimable information! Thank you so much, as I'm sailing same journey this October, your post is very helpful.
Dear TBMBMurphy, We are sailing on October this year, the same clipper and the same itinerary. Unfortunately there isn't any roll for this journey. "Diddn" wrote very helpful post, but may be you can give us some new tips, as you sailed only half a year before. Does the company arrange any transfer from Rome or from the airport to the pier and back? Did you take their shore excursions, if yes, what do you recommend? Thank you very much!
